As EU Trade Commissioner Karel De Gucht briefed the new Parliament on progress in a EU-US free trade deal, anti-TTIP MEPs held a protest in Strasbourg on Tuesday. 

Demanding greater transparency in the negotiations, MEPs asked how the Commission is meeting the conditions set by Parliament when it approved the opening of the TTIP talks over a year ago. 

“Parliament must be kept on board in talks with the US”, it warned in a resolution voted on Thursday.
